The Scourge of Potential
The puppy and the little boy
Having a chat.
“You’re lucky, Frank,” said the boy to his dog.
Why?”replied Frank with his tail.”
“Because, Frank, people assume you will grow up to be a dog
You were born a dog.”
“People assume I need to learn how to become a human.”
“I wish I was born a dog so people would accept me
As I am
Instead of seeing me
As what I have the potential to become.”
“Woof,” said Frank, in agreement.
